They worried in vain. Aids and Tuberculoses are worst.

So now it's H1N1. Has everyone so soon forgot6ten "swine flu", "avian flu" and all the "pandemics" promoted by the venal media in order to put money into the pockets of pharmaceutical companies? Disregard all the pseudo-medical hogwash preying upon widespread ignorance. Hypochondria causes sickness; worry undermines health.

Lionel, it isn't 'hypochondria' which causes sickness. It's viruses. And bacteria. And other such things.

We've been relatively lucky for quite awhile when it comes to influenza. Because it has killed a really substantial number of people throughout the years. I hope we won't see in my lifetime a serious worldwide pandemic like we saw early in the 20th century, where tens of millions of people died worldwide.

It seems strange that epidemiological action that included isolation and immunization is not being given credit by the commentators. Avian flu had the potential to kill hundreds, if not thousands of millions. It was contained by prompt action. It's not a case of "hypochondria". The threats were real and people did die. give credit to the people who saved the world!
